When you visit places that are awe-inspiring, you can’t help but click some photos. It matters not what type of camera you have in possession, the pictures will still come out far better than what you see in your social media feeds. And that’s the great thing about Photogenic destinations.
If you’re planning a trip or you’re a photographer on a quest to some good photos, but don’t know where to head, Mohit Bansal Chandigarh, a renowned photographer, shares his list of best photogenic places around the world.
Bolivia – Salar De Uyuni
This is no way the place you can reach easily and yet without mentioning, you can complete a list of beautiful destinations in the world. It bears a significant presence in the world. Salar De Uyuni remains photogenic throughout the year.
From February to April, during the wet season, these salt flats create a distinct mirror effect that is not seen anywhere else in the world. In other months, when it is usually dry, you get to witness an endless horizon that appears secluded yet appealing to the eyes.
New Zealand – Fiordland
A lot of people call New Zealand the most beautiful country in the world. Whether this is true or not is yet to be tested, but about Fiordland, it has got to be the most beautiful place. Apart from its picturesque beauty, Fiordland is also popular for spots like Milford and Doubtful sounds.
Mohit Bansal Describes this place as a haven for landscape and nature photographers. It’s like seeing a painting complete its course.
Iceland – Hvitserkur
Head towards the North-west and you’ll arrive at this place. We all know Iceland is famous for the blue lagoon and Aurora Borealis, but not many know there’s a dragon looking mountain drinking water from the sea.
What makes Hvitserkur a true gem is you won’t see many tourists here, it’s a place in solitude where you can see seals in their natural habitat.
Northern Ireland – Hedges
For this one, you don’t have to go to remote places of Northern Ireland. You can just go skedaddling out of your door and you will see the dark hedge. It is special because of its spookiness. You’ll feel funny around here and it definitely has that 16th-century vibe. This photo was shared by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh on his instaInstagramunt.
To tell you honestly, it’s one of the most clicked places in the Northern Ireland. Its partly due to a Popular Irish TV show involving dragons. Overall, it’s a place no one can guess to be situated adjacent to the residential area.
Every year some country gets the title of being the most appealing to tourists but seldom people talk about places that are remote or aren’t a major attraction among travellers. Faroe Island, an archipelago which is self-governed has a bunch of astonishing places. And we are talking about sights similar to the ones in Avatar or After Earth.
Mulafossur Waterfall in particularly interesting and that is where you should be heading if that one perfect shot is what you are after. Geographically this island has been sandwiched by Norway and Iceland and yet both the countries don’t influence Faroe. Once you’re here, you’ll get to see lush green mountain forests, majestic waterfalls and pristine lagoons.
India – Chandigarh
A lot of people would agree as they say there are other prettier places that deserve to be named. So are the other countless places and yet you can’t put them all here. Chandigarh is a city created out of hills and crafted with artistry.
Not only that, the nearby places are ten times greater that what you’d find elsewhere. The city is surrounded in a green belt. A manmade lake that’s ravishingly gorgeous, a garden hand crafted out of scrap and a botanical garden with over 1600 species of rose. What else you need in a city. Adding to the beauty is the Studio P3 Cafe that looks like you’re in Santorini Italy and Mohit Bansal Chandigarh Cafe, which is famous for not just food but also for perfect clicks.
Life has only one purpose, do what you love and if you want to capture the beauty surrounding the world, don’t wait anymore. Start with these places and go beyond wherever your heart takes you.
